Supplimentary Grant for publication & dissemination of results of Pakistan Galliform Project.
The Pakistan Galliform Project is a three year project which is in the completion stages. It was executed by World Pheasant Association Pakistan with collaboration with the N.W.F.P Wildlife Department.

It has been a monitoring program aiming to measure various populations of pheasants in Hazara district of N.W.F.P. A lot of information regarding pheasant populations, habitat utilization and ecological pressure has been collected as well as annotated checklists of bird and mammal species, updating distribution and status of many species in Hazara.

Many biodiversity projects in Pakistan working in the Northern Areas do not have any background or base data resulting in that evaluation of the project is impossible simply because it is not known what the project is attempting to initially conserve. Due to the scientific approach to this work, the results contribute indications of the conditions of the forest and also support a theory that pheasant species are important forest indicator species.

The project has covered new ground regarding biodiversity research and temperate forest ecology. This work has been recognized internationally by conservation organizations as an important step towards the development of biodiversity monitoring.

The project strongly feel that there is a lot of information that needs to be bought to the attention of governmental departments, non-governmental organizations (NGO's), niversities and colleges, international conservation and environmental organizations and policy makers of Pakistan.

The research data will be of interest to conservation and scientific organizations and the concerned departments in Pakistan. However, the conclusions and recommendations based on the field work and research will have great importance to the conservation policy makers of Pakistan (i.e. NCCW, Federal Government) as well as Environmental NGO's (IUCN and WWF).
